Postdoctoral Associate (engineering) — University of Pennsylvania

Cool postdoctoral opportunity in global health diagnostics from Professor David Issadore at University of Pennsylvania:

Hello FluidMEMS community,

For those of you who do not already know me, my name is Dave Issadore. I did my PhD at Harvard with Bob Westervelt (2009), did my post-doc with Ralph Weissleder at MGH (2009-2012), and am now at University of Pennsylvania as an Assistant Professor in Bioengineering and Electrical & Systems Engineering. I am searching for a talented, highly motivated engineer to join me as a post doc.

Our research focuses on developing new technologies for diagnosing disease. In this research area, microelectronics, microfluidics, and nanomaterials are integrated into miniaturized chip-based systems to detect molecular markers of disease. We have a strong collaboration with the Abramson Cancer Center on circulating tumor material detection and we have a strong collaboration with the Center For AIDS Research (CFAR) on TB detection in patients with HIV co-infections. Collaborations with a group in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa and a hospital in Botswana may require some travel.

Here is a link to our group’s website if you would like to learn more:

If this sounds interesting to you, please feel free to contact me directly (

    Hi Professor Dave

    I am interested in this post doc position. I just graduated from University of Waterloo.

    I am wondering that if this position is still available.
